now and where he's finding investment opportunities. here's a hint, we'll talk india. it's all coming up on "closing bell." back to you. >> sounds great, maria. i'm michelle caruso-cabrera here at cnbc headquarters. wall street wrapping up on a downmote. s&p 500 down for the month mark the third straight january for the index. the last time we saw was between 1968 and 1970. you remember those days? we're going to see a down year based on the so-called january barometer. are we? we're going to explore that a little bit later on in the show. first, though, here's a look at how we finished the day on wall street. the industrials are lower by 56 points, 10063. a decline of about half a percent. the s&p 500 lower by a full 1%. 1073. the nasdaq got hit very hard and what you're looking at there is actually an improvement from the worst levels and they were bad. down 1.5%. 31 points, 2147. let's get more on today's market action as we wrap up the month of january. scott wapner has our "eye on the floor" at the new york stock exchange. scott? >> reporter: and michelle, it was the worst month
perspective, we're still quite bullish on both china and india. >> are there areas you like more than others? give me a sense of the real opportunities around the world right now? >> it's interesting. i just came back from saudi arabia. i was in some of the other countries in northern africa along the mediterranean and here in the arab region. i'm quite excited by some of the things i'm seeing. profitability is very high in some of these companies. growth is high. despite the problems dubai has, credit is still available. of course, some of the banks are hurting. but that's going to be solved, i think, in the not too distant future. this is a very interesting area. if you look at the big picture in terms of the large amounts of money we have in our large funds, it would be china. it would be brazil. and then following that, india and russia. >> are there sectors that are leading the growth, in your opinion? >> there are two sectors we're emphasizing. first is commodities. we believe that commodities will continue to trend upwards. there's the demand/supply situation is such that we see highe
't restructure pakistan security priorities. india is a nuclear armed power, and that's pakistan's major in me. so fighting terrorism, i would say, maybe even in their own country is secondary to the pakistan. it's certainly secondary in the mind of the pakistani military. pakistan is a nuclear armed country as being charged with a new build since he being fueled in my view by the u.s. military presence in afghanistan, and attacks into pakistan. just as the president has fueled the taliban insurgency if you examine the timeline, it didn't seem to begin until 2006. in 2005, u.s. forces moved out of kabul and into the countryside. i think something similar is happening to what happened in the soviet period where the more troops so they troops put in just created more fighters against them. now, obama has really said that german strike outside the tribal areas and special forces to hit afghan taliban targets in pakistan, will be used or at least threatened if the pakistanis to do something about it. i think this will drive pakistan public opinion crazy. and of course, i think these sorts of strik
time. within the last month i made a trip to afghanistan and syria and india. and my study of the situation in afghanistan leads me to oppose the president's plan to send 30,000 additional troops. i think we have to do whatever it takes to fight al qaeda because they're out to annihilate us. but why fight them in afghanistan when they can just as easily organize in yemen or in somalia or elsewhere? efforts to get help from the pakistanis is not being very successful. in india, our congressional delegation met with prime minister singh. i put the question to him, would he be willing to have a lem takes with the number of troops oned border which would eliminate pakistani troops to help us fight. prime minister singh said he would if the terrorists would be stopped from coming into india as they blew up the hotel in mumbai more than a year ago. so there are many things to be done. our congressional delegation visited in syria. i have visited the mideast almost every year during my ten your i -- during my tenure in te senate. very much concerned about the security of israel an

to soviet presence in afghanistan. i was born in india. they built roads, schools, colleges, and sent indians to britain for education. >> what is the question? >> my question is are we not doing the same thing? believing their own presence, i have been to pakistan twice since last three years. we fought in the 1980's -- >> thank you. are we making the same mistakes as the soviets or rise in iraq? the difference between the soviet occupation and american and the other countries involved in the effort in afghanistan is like night and day. a missing it is important to remember one-and-a-half% were killed. it was the largest refugee population in history. it was also the most heavily- -- mined country in the world. the answer to are they similar, i say the answer is great interest to policy makers and everyone else in the country. the about the iraq surge, which i personally oppose along with probably everybody else on this panel was doubling down on the fact that part of why i oppose this is what was going on in iraq. it went into probably the nastiest civil war in recent modern history

example about which i talked in my book. it is about india and a few years ago workers in a state-owned factory, the workers felt that the hours that they were doing did not reflect the payment that they were getting. so you know, somewhere the member that were working were not being loaded properly so the workers decided to go and ask the four men, you know, how many hours was he looking and they were told it was a state secret. because it was a state-run factory and their was a piece of all going back to the colonial times which meant any information provided by a state officials a state secret. that was the beginning of a nationwide movement in india for freedom of information legislation, and it eventually led the indian government to adopt a law we about freedom of information. now i was in india about six months after that law was adopted in 2006 and i met an activist who was working in one of the villages, so i asked her as the law made any difference and she told me in the village where she was working the state provides the food for public works and now the villages go an
china, it's south korea, india, singapore. the global growth story is certainly in play. these alcoa numbers are going to be very, very critical because it's going to set the stage. if we're going to have a rally leading into 2010 it has to be a profits-driven market. >> revenue-driven as well. we're waiting for end-market demand here. will we see any for the the fourth quarter? >> we are naing bob mentioned the weaker dollar certainly helping exports. i think trade, u.s. trade is actually going to be a net positive which will be a big surprise for this year. now keep in mind, though, analysts do expect roughly at 94% increase in earnings from the material's space year over year for the fourth quarter. so the bar is set pretty high for materials. nonetheless, we still like them. we have materials in portfolio along with other procyclical sectors. >> but as we all know it's not just fundamentals that really drive things but also valuation. coming off of a period when we see some of the indexes up, what 50%, 60%, 70% from the lows. do i want to be committing new money to this market at
the borderlands and now deep into the heartland of pakistan. for a variety of reasons, mostly dealing with india, the pakistani military establishment believes it must maintain at least parts of those relationships. in the last year, we have seen part of the jihaddist frankenstein in pakistan actually turn against its old master and today, pakistan is witnessing the most serious political violence in the country's history. it is bordering on civil war. in many ways. the good news here is that the pakistani people seem to increasingly come to the conclusion that their freedoms and their way of life is truly threatened by this jihaddist monster. that wakeup is the best news we've seen in pakistan in a long time. where do we go next? well, the first thing i would stress is we cannot delink afghanistan and pakistan. in fact, we cannot delink afghanistan from its water regional environment. if we are to succeed in afghanistan, whatever success means, it must be done within a larger, regional environment. we will need to find ways to encourage all of afghanistan's neighbors to help in trying to stable
